We have been given the go-ahead by Scottish Golf to run a singles knock-out competition, so we’ve decided to start the Winter Knock-out early, and to run it this year as a singles competition. This should make organisation easier and ensure that we meet Covid requirements.

The competition will be run by Kay Lannin, and entries should be sent to her (kathleeen.lannin@icloud.com) by Friday 21 August and the draw will be published shortly afterwards.

Please note that her email address really does have 3 ‘e’s in the first name, it’s not a typo!

The Winter Foursomes rules will apply and we will announce separately any decision that has to be made about handicaps if the new handicapping system is introduced in November.

We hope to get lots of entries, as we have all been starved of competitive golf this year.
